I sat next to Margene in class and really enjoyed her laugh and sense of humor.  We crossed paths several years ago at Zions Bank where we both worked.  I exchanged email with her earlier this year about the reunion list.  A couple of weeks later I followed up with another message and her email returned with the standard indication that she was out of the office. I learned of her passing shortly afterwards from one of Benson's updates.   At first I thought it must be a mistake.  I wish it was.
